Challenge Day 3 - Anthropologie Inspired Necklace

I have been dying over this necklace from Anthropologie for months.  






BUT - at the tune of $198 - I think my unemployed butt can make one myself.  I have been trying and trying to figure out how they made it, and, after much trial and error I finally got it.  


I didn't want to rip off the whole idea though - LOVED the colors, but I had purchased a large old key charm about a month ago and have been dying to use it for something.


So, here it is, my version of the $198 neklace.






I love it - and actually wore it to an interview this morning.  So great to dress up a tee and jeans, right?  

Till tomorow - I have a home project that I'm planning to do - pretty time intensive so I saved it for a Saturday!
